The forthcoming Patch Tuesday, scheduled for 13th November will include only two security bulletins, announced Microsoft.
Amongst the two bulletins issued by Microsoft as a part of its monthly patch release, one has been giving a “critical” rating and claims to affect Windows Server 2003 and XP. The fact that it has been given a “critical” rating is reflective of the fact that attackers can exploit the flaw to take control of a system without user interaction.
On the other hand, the second flaw has been described as a spoofing vulnerability that could make it possible for an attacker to change the address bar in Internet Explorer to hide the fact that the user is visiting a phishing website.
Rated “important”, the second vulnerability affects only Windows Server 2003 systems.
Apart from the abovementioned patches, Microsoft will release three non-security, high-priority updates on Microsoft Update and Windows Server Update Services.
